*Sigh*

Lets write again before I forget...

About the weight thing. It's not bad you know. My plan... Why is it so frowned upon? The logo for this group was me when I was 29kg. I don't think I look ill, saggy skin, jutting bones or anything. I'm slender. And it fits for my height.

Ok ok. So apparently for my height 4ft 8" I should weight 45-50kg. That is absurd. I have been 48kg before. I exploded to that weight and I don't know what happened. I lost control and ate too many chocolates.

I didn't even realise it till people were whispering behind my back. And this guy came up to me and asked "are you pregnant?" It just felt so horrible and then a guy whispered to his girlfriend "that girl is small but fat" pointing at me. So horrible and I realised and had to do something.

I have worked so hard to get to 36kg now but people are like "you could do with putting on 2 stone more" I can't win. I know if I was 2 stone more I would look horrible and my belly would be huge. And they insist, it makes me want to cry.

Whats wrong with me wanting to be under 30kg? Other people can do what they want to their bodies. Have it however they want but I feel that this is the right choice for me. I just want to feel comfortable in my skin and not have to hide behind baggy clothes.

It's 66lbs or 4stone 10lbs according to some online weight conversion thingy - and I'm sorry but I just think it's a little dangerous to be that slim - just my opinion, hey I'm not a doctor.

I think it is 85 pounds or something... =/ The metric system rocks! :D<br />

Thank you Phoenix and Foltor for your input. <br />

I know that body fat percentage is most important in determining whether a person is ill/unfit. For example; even the most skinniest of people can have fat around their internal organs etc. <br />
<br />
I admit I don't eat much these days. I restrict myself from things because I'm scared to put weight on. But, I know my limits and will stop when I reach my goal.<br />

On the one hand, BMI is a steaming pile of bull. On the other hand, 30kg is creepy thin, even for 4'8".<br />
<br />
"Other people can do what they want to their bodies." Ummm, sure, I guess, theoretically, but that doesn't make it healthy, attractive, or wise.

Ah, Damn the Metric system!<br />
<br />
How many pounds is that?! XD

I don't think you can rely too heavily on "BMI".<br />
<br />
If I have survived with a BMI of 14 or less I think I will be fine. There are people out there with a low BMI. Do they look emaciated? I have never looked emaciated before.<br />
<br />
Maybe we should do a test. Maybe I should be whats considered a "normal" weight (45) for my size and show people what it looks like. <br />
<br />
I'm sorry but it's not nice at all :( <br />

4ft 8" and being 30 kilos sounds dangerous, you're BMI (body mass index) should be in the range of 19-25 for the "healthy weight range". If you were 50 kilos your BMI would be at 25, near overweight. Currently you're BMI is 14.8,
